Dear Customer,

Please be aware that Avangate and Media Crawler are two different companies. Avangate provides payment services to over 30.000 websites, one of them being Media Crawler. From the complaint you posted it looks like you signed up for the trial version of Media Crawler's service and did not disable the automatic billing during the 7 days of the trial, hence the 69.95$ charge. If you would be kind enough to provide us with more information regarding the order we could submit a refund request to Media Crawler.

Kind regards,
Avangate Support Team

Good Day.

I did explain every thing nicely and later received my refund,

Ok not sure about the two companies but normally it will not be possible to deduct money from somebodies account.I still thinking they are out to catch the people.

Thanks Again

J'ai ete debite de 62, 93€ alors que j'avais bien precise que que je ne le voulais pas. D'autant que je n'ai jamais recu aucun code d'acces.
Facture Numero : 150312
Si je n'arrive pas a avoir de remboursement, je porterais plainte et ferais une action en justice par l'intermediaire d'une association de consommateurs.

I purchased a trial period of 7 days for a company called Media Crawler. At the time of signup I clicked on a box that said "disable auto-renewal".
They charged me $69.95 for the full service anyway. Now they are insisting that there is no checkbox to disable auto-renewal and will not refund my money.
I have emailed "media crawler" to tell them that I want a refund. They refuse !!!, The only thing they say they will do it . This was done once already 1 days ago on 3/21/12.
I want me $69.95 back. I am disabled and on a fixed income. This is ridiculous.

Dear hansen272,

Please take into consideration the fact that Avangate and Media Crawler are two different companies. Online payments for orders placed on http://www.media-crawler.com are processed by Avangate as a reseller of Innovative Media Solutions Ltd., the merchant operating http://www.media-crawler.com. For details regarding issues other than online payment processing we recommend contacting the software / service provider.

The same situation applies if you need a refund for your order. Refunds are approved directly by the software / service provider. If the refund is refused, the only other solution available is to file a dispute with your bank.
Thank you in advance for your understanding.

Best regards,
Avangate Support Team

Je suis affolée, je m'aperçois que j'ai été débitée de 62, 30euros sans aucune volonté de ma part. Je souhaite d'une part un remboursement et d'autre part, souhaite stopper toute colaboration ou engagement avec cette sociéte. d'autre part votre adresse de consommateur ne fonctionne pas . je commence à trouver cela plus que douteux. veuillez me rembourser au plus vite, sinon je crains devoir faire appel à la justice.

Dear Fred Ohara,

Could you be kind enough to provide us with the order reference number, here or by email? If you have been charged already we will gladly refund the money, since Media-Crawler recently gave us direct approval for this.

Kind regards,
